Am I really...

...this old?

Thank goodness my girls treated me to cake a few days ago.
Check these out.

No calories.

And each one is even sweeter.

The day is not going quite as I had planned.
I woke up at 5.
Did some laundry.
Cleaned things up.
Made a breakfast casserole for everyone.
Drove the boy to his 7 a.m. Jazz session.
Came back home to a sick little girl.

I'm not home alone.

So I'll be here.
Won't be taking the intense sports drill class at the gym with a friend.
Won't be heading to Geneva to window shop.
Won't be seeing "Eat, Pray, Love" all by myself as planned.

I know it sounds really weird,
But I was really looking forward to seeing a movie all by myself!

Oh well.
I can do all those things another day.
I did buy myself a good coffee.
I'm enjoying some sunflowers on the counter.
I'll be productive around the house.
I'll get some time in the art studio,
and maybe watch a movie with my little girl.

When you're a mom,
it's really just another day!



  1. So sorry to hear your little one is sick!
    Hope she is on the mend soon and you get to do all those things you had planned.
    I have never seen a movie alone, but it sounds divine!
    Enjoy the day

  2. Happy Birthday to you Miss Julie! You look great for 39, I never would of guessed your age. I hope your day and your rain check birthday are both great!

  3. Happy Birthday! Arent our babies just blessings :) I totally get the whole watching a movie alone thing - definitely something everyone should have time to do! Hope your day is just fantastic anyway!

  4. Ah, shucks. I love your birthday list, and you are right - there will be other days. I love seeing movies by myself and sneak them in when I can. I wish you a very happy birthday and a wonderful, amazing year ahead!

  5. Happy Birthday! Sorry it isn't what you planned, but it sounds peaceful and I'm sure your little sick one will give you extra snuggles cause it's your birthday!

  6. Happy Birthday! Mom birthdays NEVER seem to go as planned, do they?

  7. Happy Happy Happy Birthday Beautiful Julie.
    I hope that there are some lovely little surprises in your day and that it turns out ot be a wonderful year in your life.
